Checkin, bag check, boarding and arriving safe to my destination.

Flight was 50 minutes late departing on a morning originating flight (scheduled departure time 6:10am). At departure time 20 people had to voluntarily move to the back of the aircraft due to a weight and balance problem. Then it took another 30+ minutes to get revised/new “paperwork”. Upon arrival in JAX (30 minutes late) we couldn’t deplane due to problems with the jetway, yet another additional delay.

The flight was nice and comfortable I haven't been on a plane since 2005 so I'm happy!!!! Thanks

Prices of snacks are to expensive maybe some real food like pizza, hot dogs etc....... And the charge for luggage is ridiculous $45 is alot for one bag even more if you have two or three bags whether it's carry on or the other it's still $45 and that's to much. Thanks!!!!!

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

^
The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
